Spay and Neuter Pricing

The most effective way to end the senseless killing of innocent animals is to ensure everyone has access to free or low-cost spay/neuter services.

Standard Rates

ARC's mission is to provide access to affordable spay/neuter surgeries and veterinary services.  To further support this mission, appointments requested after November 1st, 2023, will have a two-tiered pricing structure applied.  The pricing levels are based on household family income as well as animal weight for dog patients. Please note we have a weight limit of 100 lbs for dogs.
